Authentic food with excellent service over and above what's expected. The meal was finished off unexpectedly with complimentary Zibibbo. The waiter was very attentive and extremely helpful. Donkey steak on the menu for those willing to try something different.

The place was packed with huge families having Sunday dinner...always the best sign for the locals’ favorite special spot. Sumptuous plates, subtle flavors, loving presentation, rightly proud owners...the sort of small town place we dreamed of in our anticipation of Sicily.
